I'm a freelance writer and editor specializing in journalism and essays about art and culture.
My work has appeared in The Boston Globe, BuzzFeed, Los Angeles Magazine, NBC Asian America, O: The Oprah Magazine, The Rumpus, Shondaland, The Washington Post, Zora, and more. My essays will also be included in two anthologies coming out in 2020.
I'm currently the weekend editor at Apartment Therapy and a copy editor at HelloGiggles.
Previously, I co-founded The Blend, a HelloGiggles vertical dedicated to mixed-race and multicultural identity. Before that, I was the online editor at Japanese American community newspaper The Rafu Shimpo and a fiction reader at Guernica Magazine. I have a Master of Professional Writing (MPW) in Nonfiction from the University of Southern California and a BA in Japanese Studies from Middlebury College.
I also test knitting patterns for designers and yarn companies and teach classes at a local yarn shop.
